Eastern Weller Township, Henry County, Illinois, plat map

The census records have shown that my great great great great grandfather Henry Emery lived in the town of Weller, Henry County, Illinois during the 1860's and 1870's.   
Here is a plat map from 1875 for eastern Weller township, in Henry County, which indicates Weller was not a town, but rather a rural area west of Bishop Hill.

Henry owned 308 acres and the property is found at the red arrow below (between quadrant 28 and 33), though his name has been misspelled as "Emry".
